EDUCATIONAL ENHANCEMENT ACTIVITIES:

6.  WRITING ON THE WALL PROJECT:  The Writing on the Wall Project is both
a community experience and a personal act to confront oppression and
inhumanity.  Through the act of constructing a 35 by 9 foot cinder block
wall in the middle of campus representing the oppression of others - and
bringing down this structure - participants experience the power to create
positive change for the future.  The community then comes together to
collectively pull down the wall, symbolically removing the barriers that
separated us.  The Wall will be built and torn down as part of People
Awareness Week, which is January 27-31, 2003.  We are looking for a staff
of dedicated, innovative leaders.  We have many exciting positions
available, so please apply for this excellent leadership opportunity.
This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone concerned with diversity,
interested in becoming part of a new and innovative project, or just
looking to do some good and have some fun.  This is the first time this
project has been attempted at UF, and we are looking to put together a
great group of people to kick off its inaugural year.  The application is
easy, and can be emailed to us or turned in at the Reitz Union.  More
information is available at http://ufwallproject.tripod.com.

7.  HIP HOP SPEAKER:  Islam on Campus and the Bangladeshi Student
Association present:  Napoleon of the Outlaw Immortalz, a group that
rapper Tupac Shakur once belonged to, will be speaking on his memories of
Tupac and personal life experiences on Sunday, Dec. 15, at 7 pm in the
Reitz Union Auditorium (2nd floor). The Forum will discuss hip hop's
impact on today's society and will also reveal Napoleon's spiritual
relationship with Islam.

8.  STUDENTS IN THE HEALING ARTS:  Students In The Healing Arts is
collecting donations for a needy family this holiday season. The donations
are for a 6 year old boy with a brain tumor and his family who will not be
able to afford any presents for Christmas this year. Toys or cash

9.  OFFICE OF COMMUNITY SERVICE:  Each holiday season, underprivileged
families in our community receive basic necessities such as clothing, as
well as wish list items such as toys, all because of the Adopt-a-Family
program implemented by the Volunteer Center of Alachua County.  This year
the Office of Community Service of UF would like to help collect items to
be given to these needy families. A collection box will be set up on the
first floor of the Reitz Union, next to the Christmas tree, until Friday,
Dec. 20. So stop by and drop off any miscellaneous items you wish to
donate: medicine, toiletries, clothing, games, food, etc.  For more
